“The first quarter was an outstanding start to 2018 with 40 percent year-over-year revenue growth. PC, gaming and datacenter adoption of our new, high-performance products continues to accelerate. We are excited about our long-term roadmaps and focused on delivering sustained revenue growth and profitability.”

--Dr. Lisa Su, President and CEO of AMD

GPU-Equipped Ryzen Pros Give AMD What It Needs to Conquer the Corporate Desktop

Integrated graphics mean that AMD's chips can now go head to head with Intel's

Summary:

  • AMD published their Q1 2018 results on April 25th, 2018 crushing analyst estimates on earnings, revenue and guidance.
  • Revenues increased 40% year-over-year. The improving margin scenario provides additional upside for the stock as AMD finally starts producing sizable profits.
  • The stock surged 11%  in extended trading and had increased ever since the company published their Q1 2018 earnings.
  • The Q1 2018 earnings report of AMD also revealed that its Computing and Graphics segment has posted its 5th consecutive quarter of double digit Year-over-Year growth.
  • Thanks to stronger Ryzen processors sales, AMD posted an EPS of $0.11 (beats by $0.2), and revenue of $1.65 billion (+39.8% year over year) - beats by $80 million.
  • The reasons why AMD is beating estimates are the same. Cryptocurrency miners still bought many Radeon discrete GPUs. Ryzen APUs and processors are also finding more customers.
  • The forthcoming release of ASIC miners shouldn't be of concern. They do not threaten the lucrative tailwind of AMD from Ethereum miners.
